Stretching throughout the Caribbean, the British Virgin Islands are a kaleidoscope of aquamarine waters, sun-soaked harbors, and white-sand beaches. It was here where The Moorings first started more than 50 years ago with a small fleet of monohulls and from where it grew to the premier charter company it is today. Nowadays, with more than 200 yachts, the marina on Tortola is still the largest amongst the 20 bases that The Moorings calls “home”.
Since the hurricane that hit the BVI in 2017, the resilient islands made a fantastic comeback and guests can be sure to receive all support needed to make their trip a smooth cruising experience from beginning to end at The Moorings base location in Road Town.
Under a new name—the Mariner Yacht Club—the restaurant, pool, and bar area in the center of the marina property have undergone a complete renovation, giving it a clean, modern, and inviting aesthetic. It is the perfect place to lounge and unwind after a long day of traveling or enjoy one last cocktail before catching your flight home.
The provisioning store has moved to a more convenient location on-site and was greatly increased in size. An upgrade to multiple industrial-sized washers and dryers, which also have automated ironing capabilities, help the Tortola cleaning team save precious time and effort in order to get guests off the dock on time.
The Mariner Inn hotel which was heavily impacted by Hurricane Irma has undergone a full renovation in the months since too. All garden and marina-view rooms have received a full upgrade and retrofit, making the hotel once again one of the premier accommodation options on the island.
With a few exceptions all bars and restaurants have reopened since the storm, and with all-time favorites like the Cooper Island Beach Club, Soggy Dollar, and the Willy T on your cruising itinerary and a private vacation platform under your feet every day is a fun day in the BVI.
Whether guests are interested in the freedom of a sail-it-yourself bareboat yacht, the all-inclusive luxury of a crewed yacht with captain and chef, or the speed and convenience of an innovative power catamaran, The Moorings is proud to offer premier quality yacht charters all around the world catered to the unique needs of the individual traveler.
